I need help on this one and fast. I am having a Paris bridal shower and I ordered my invitaions which cost 2.50 each to a toal of 65 of them. The time I wrote on there was 12 P.M and last minute after I placed the order my mother in law mention 12 would be too early as it is not a brunch anymore and to change it to 1.p.m. My shower is in July so I couldnt delay the processing any more. MY solution: to add a cute little card to the invite and add” Pardon” time change is to 1 p.m (any ideas?) my mother in law wants to just re make them at work which will make me lose 136$ and the nice quality paper it came on sigh… Somebody tell me adding a little card for time change isnt “tacky” 🙁

Tell her you’re keeping the time as 12 as long as you’re serving lunch it’s definitely not too early.

I don’t think it’s necessarily tacky, just kind of confusing. I wouldn’t be surprised if some people lost the little card and show up at 12pm. I would either eat the costs (no fun) or just have it at the previously determined time of 12pm. It’s not that much of a difference really.

I would most likely forget or lose the insert, then show up an hour early, then I would feel stupid about showing up an hour early. At this point, I’d say reprint or stick with the orginal time.

is there a way you could cover up the 2 in 12 without it looking obvious?

if it’s clipped to the card theyll have read it or just cross out the 2 in 12:OO p.m? This sucks, and the card is really pretty too. It’s my mother in law that wants to change the time…

Stick with a 12 pm shower. It will cause confusion otherwise.
Just plan food accordingly, more of a ‘lunch’ then just snacks and appetizer-y things that you might have done otherwise.

It might seem a little odd, but what if you sent the invites ASAP and then sent a little card with the time change a few days later? People would be more likely to remember it that way.

I’d rather say good bye to the $136 than confuse people or DIY a time change on the invite myself.

I would personally just leave it at 12. A few people will arrive earlier than said time because they aren’t the type to be right on time, or be late.

i would leave it at 12 and tell your MIL that it’s already been printed. no way would i go through all of that effort just because she thinks 12 is early (which it isn’t!).

linalu4: I agree with everyone just keep the same time and you know some people won’t show up on time

just leave it for noon … its not too early for brunch in fact brunch is between breakfast and lunch so usually more like 11 am

it was supposed to be a brunch but the menue changed even though I am still serving mimosas if that makes a difference lol. I am going to try and go to Micheals and see if I can use nice number stickers to place over the 12:00 and I wont have to hear it from her anymore. I hope no one else has to deal with this issue. gosh…

Keep it at 12, or reprint the invitation. Sending a correction card in your invitation looks lazy, quite honestly.
